Blake Shelton is set to host an Elvis tribute on NBC

Blake Shelton is hosting “Elvis All-Star Tribute” on NBC on Feb. 17, in honor of the network’s iconic 1968 special. “We all know Elvis Presley as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, but it was his ’68 comeback special on NBC that truly secured his reign,” said Alfred Haber, president of the company which secured the upcoming show’s exclusive international distributions rights. “Now, 50 years later, the Elvis All-Star Tribute is the fitting salute to the man, his music, and the night he reclaimed his crown.”

According to a press release, “the special features an all-star group of music superstars, including Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendez, Josh Groban, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton and many more, who pay tribute to Elvis, recreating the spectacle – even the staging – of that unforgettable night.”
